Visit to Memorial Centre cancelled this weekend

24 Oct

As it turns out, Lil Dorothy will NOT be at the Memorial Centre Farmers’ Market  on Sunday 27 October. But don’t worry, November is looking like a very busy month with dates planned for Gananoque and Kingston. Details will be posted as soon as everything is confirmed. Plus there’s some exciting news to come about classes and workshops starting soon! Stay tuned, folks!


Thank you Kingston

I am so grateful to the Kingston community for responding so positively to Lil Dorothy, Purlin’ J’s yarn truck. Here is another great piece from Kingston This Week.

Good news, everybody! Lil Dorothy will be parked and open for business at the Frontenac Mall (1300 Bath Road, Kingston) for two whole weekends this month: Sat/Sun 5/6 and 19/20 October!

This means you can visit this weekend and get started on your fall projects, and then visit again on 19/20 October to show off your progress!  It feels good to be in one place for a while.
